Better to use a s/s wire clamp. Use an extra nut to clamp an insulated ring terminal on (ring terminal terminates the GTO-15 wire from the tuner).
If you do the insulating well, using adhesive
heat-shrink tubing and/or other waterproofing material, you don't even need a "drip loop"; just go directly to the clamp.
